Taco is the best comfort food. All the great flavors bursting inside your mouth in every bite. I’m in love with tacos so when I first saw this recipe for a Taco Pie, I was a bit skeptical at first. But all that is gone when I tasted it. The elements of a taco are put together in one skillet and covered with melted cheese – absolutely stunning, and with no doubt delicious! And it is an absolute weight watcher friendly!
5 8-inch flour tortillas fat-free
1 lb. ground beef; fat-free
1 16 oz. can refried beans
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium taco seasoning
1/4 cup water
1 jar salsa (I didn’t measure, just used big spoonful’s)
2 cups shredded Colby jack cheese
2 green onions, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
How to make Weight Watchers Taco Pie
Step 1: Brown the ground beef in a skillet while breaking it up as it cooks. Once the beef is browned, drain excess grease, and add in the taco seasoning and water. Mix until incorporated, then, remove from heat. You can use an 8-inch iron skillet or whatever is available.
Step 2: Put the flour tortilla in the bottom of the pan. Evenly spread a few big spoonfuls of salsa on top of the tortilla, followed by some of the refried beans, then, some meat and lastly some cheese. Repeat the exact layers for the remaining spreads. And top each layer with a flour tortilla. Make sure to save some cheese for later use.
Step 3: Place inside the oven, covered with tinfoil, and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Step 4: After 20 minutes, remove from the oven and spread the remaining cheese over.
Step 5: Return the dish into the oven, uncovered, and bake for another 6 to 7 minutes or until the topped cheese is melted and the tortilla edges are crisp.
Step 6: Remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle the green onions on top and top with tomatoes. Slice and serve hot. Enjoy!
